Patient Information (NHS England) - Arthroscopic shoulder decompression for subacromial shoulder pain patient leaflet
Patients suffering with persistent symptoms of subacromial shoulder impingement, despite appropriate non-operative management should be given the option to choose decompression surgery.
Note: Subacromial shoulder impingement means subacromial pain not caused by associated diagnoses such as rotator cuff tears, acromio-clavicular joint pain, or calcific tendinopathy. Non-operative treatment such as physiotherapy and exercise programmes are effective and safe in many cases.
